Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble An Apple

Ok, this was supposed to be a turkey...it kind of looks like one. The boys loved it and it only took 4 minutes to get them ready.

You will need:
  • Apple(s)
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Toothpicks, or thin skewers trimmed to size
  • Small snacks (raisins, Cherrios, Goldfish)
  • Candy corn
1. Place snacks onto the toothpicks and insert around the back of the apple. (I trimmed off the pointed ends so the kids wouldn't stab themselves.)
2. Cut a mini marshmallow in half. Push a chocolate chip through the marshmallow. Press onto the apple for eyes.
3. Attach the candy corn for a beak. I used peanut butter as a "glue" but you could also use cream cheese (in case of peanut allergies).
4. Eat and enjoy!
